This is a nice little polka from the Isle of Man. Only about five polkas survive in collections of traditional music in the Island, including versions of Farewell to Whiskey and the Rakes of Mallow, but polkas would almost certainly have been as popular there as elsewhere at the time. It goes well with Sweeney’s and Egan’s.
Also known as The Branch Line. See http://thesession.org/tunes/3753
